Some Advice from Anthony Bourdain


"Eat at a local restaurant tonight. Get the cream sauce. Have a cold pint at 4 o’clock in a mostly empty bar. Go somewhere you’ve never been. Listen to someone you think may have nothing in common with you. Order the steak rare. Eat an oyster. Have a negroni. Have two. Be open to a world where you may not understand or agree with the person next to you, but have a drink with them anyways. Eat slowly. Tip your server. Check in on your friends. Check in on yourself. Enjoy the ride."

Labor Day Dim Sum September 5, 2021

 Mike planned a special surprise day. He said it’s a holiday weekend so he ordered dim sum

 He packed a picnic pack with plates, chopsticks soy sauce and hot chili oil.

We picked up the dim sum with my favorite bbq’d steamed bao, shrimp shu Mai dumplings.


  He got his chicken feet, turnip cakes and tripe. We went to the park and feasted. 


 Now at our favorite spot by the marina.



 Happy Sunday to all.

Grandmother's Tip


My grandmother once gave me a tip:
In difficult times, move forward in small steps.
Do what you have to do, but little by little.
Don’t think about the future
or what may happen tomorrow.
Wash the dishes.
Remove the dust.
Write a letter.
Make a soup.
You see?
Advance step by step.
Take a step and stop.
Rest a little.
Praise yourself.
Take another step.
And then another.
You won’t notice, but your steps will grow more and more.
And the time will come when you can think about the future without crying.

A Nice Day With My Sister

 A wonderful reunion with my sister Jocelyn. We sat and ate In and Out burgers, fries and drank diet cokes. We laughed and caught up and were teary for missing all our family get togethers.

Acts of Kindness

 My friend Sherri just showed up at my doorstep at dinner time with lovely flowers and a big piece of Texas Chocolate Cake. When I asked her what this was for she said " I just felt like spreading some joy!" 

Such a kind and lovely friend.
